Mountain Information

Updated Thursday, February 25, 2021

All four mountains are open with over 5,000 acres of terrain open. Starting Saturday, February 13, all mountains began extended lift operating hours, with select lifts running until 4 or 4:15pm, giving you more time on the slopes.

Hope springs eternal. The snow is soft and conditions and coverage are as good as they get. It’s time for dining on the decks, goggle tans, buttery corduroy and slush bumps. With arrival of spring, we’ve also seen improvements in infection rates and fewer restrictions under current Pitkin County health and safety guidelines. Effective Friday, March 5, the county will no longer require an affidavit or negative test prior to visiting, though it is still recommended per the CDC.It’s like a breath of fresh air. Now is the time to visit Aspen Snowmass.

All Aspen Skiing Company restaurants, both on and off the mountains have received the 5-Star Variance due to our meticulous attention to health and safety protocols. We are now able to increase our indoor capacity to 50%, though truth be told, it’s deck season here at Aspen Snowmass. Tables are limited to two household use only and no group larger than 10 people. Use online ordering and Qless technology available on the Aspen Snowmass App to minimize wait times and have the best experience. Operational changes may occur before or during your visit based on restrictions as mandated by county health agencies. Our priority is your safety and we’ll strive to keep timely updates on changes here. Click here for the most up to date information.

In addition we have launched free testing for our employees through the remainder of the season to increase our ability to manage employee health and minimize potential spread in the resort.

Pitkin County will maintain the Public Health Order forbidding gatherings of more than 10 people from no more than 2 households. This impacts dining, lodging and carpooling is discouraged. Skiing with friends is fine, but please maintain social distancing throughout the day.

Pitkin County Traveller Responsibility Code
Effective Friday, March 5, Pitkin County will no longer require an affidavit or negative test prior to visiting. Instead, visitors will be asked to sign an agreement to abide by CDC guidelines when in the County, and a negative test before traveling to the area is not required, though it is still advised for all travel per the CDC. We want our community to thrive and ask guests to arrive healthy, enjoy all we have to offer, and practice the Five Commitments of Containment while here.

Operational Health Protocols
We have developed a company-wide playbook to implement new procedures and policies across all our winter operations, lifts, ski school, mountain dining, rental, retail, parking and more. Our restaurants are adapting to give you opportunities to dine safely with your group. Mobile food ordering will still be offered for contactless grab and go options on our on-mountain restaurants. In addition, Ruthie's on Aspen Mountain will be open as a warming hut with restrooms to accommodate guests. Operational changes may occur before or during your visit based on restrictions as mandated by county health agencies. Our priority is your safety and we’ll strive to keep timely updates on changes here.

Touchless Technology
To take full advantage of the touchless experience, please visit your account portal before your arrival and download the Aspen Snowmass App. This will allow you to sign waivers, use the pickup boxes at the base of each mountain for ticket redemption, order meals online and more.

Community/Guest Responsibility
While we will do everything possible to provide a safe experience, each of you has a responsibility to do the same. Both the City of Aspen and Town of Snowmass Village have mandatory face mask zones in place, that encompass most of the business and residential areas, including Gondola Plaza at the base of Aspen Mountain, the Snowmass Mall and Base Village and the transit hub/base area at Aspen Highlands. Masks are required to be worn over your nose and mouth, in lift lines and while riding lifts, while inside and in congested spaces at all mountain and base area facilities; social distancing remains part of life for now. We are at high altitude and our hospitals have limited facilities, so, please, if you are sick, at risk, or unwilling to follow guidelines around mask wearing, hygiene, and distancing, we ask that you save your visit for another time. Please follow the five commitments of containment and visit Pitkin County's website for the latest information and on Covid 19 in our area. You may also sign up for Colorado statewide exposure notifications through your mobile device. Learn more here.

With these safety precautions, we are excited to welcome you to Aspen Snowmass and we are looking forward to seeing you this winter. Whenever you’re ready to visit us, we’ll be ready to welcome you.

Ikon Passholders must continue to make reservations to ski at the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass through ahead of time. We will monitor lift ticket inventory and may sell out on certain days. If we are shut down, if you do not get on the mountain, or if you cancel your trip for any reason, your completely unused lift tickets will be refunded back to your original form of payment. + Learn More

In addition, Weekday, 7-Pack, Classic and Club Escape Passholders may purchase discounted extension days, during blackout periods, if you do not wish to use a day on your pass, or if you have already used the number of allotted days on your pass.
